Fresh out of the machine

Fresh out of the machine

Sitting looking at my tiny cnc machine I was wondering what to make and the idea of a KAP rig crossed my mind. So here is a start. It is the first time I have cut aluminum and some of the cuts are sort of rough but the pieces are coming out. It will have two servos to tilt and pan. At first, I think, it will be controlled by a basic stamp and I will have it just spin around and take panoramic pictures. Soon I hope to have it radio controlled but all that stuff will come later. There is still a little work to do before it can fly. I am hoping to work on the finish and anodize the aluminum. There is some dye in the mail so it should be a pretty color. The electronics should be simple. The basic stamp can drive the servos and it will need power (I am thinking just a 9 volt battery right now).

This is the first piece out of the cnc. It fits the servo, that’s good. Better get to work on the next pieces.
